XENOPHON AN OUT OF TUNE BALAFON
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
Xenophon explained, “The ABC/SBS has always been fair and balanced, but only when both views have merit”. His arrogance is breathtaking. Nick Xenophon explained in his best Lefty logic that the ABC should not allow equivalent air time to those who oppose things like global warming. Hmmm, I guess that applies to all opinions Nick agrees with, and it’s quite likely that the ABC/SBS will feel the same way.
And of course Xenophon is yet another SA germ that is beyond the reach of antibiotics.
Nick won’t agree to the public knowing what the wages carve-up is when almost half of the entire ABC/SBS budget of $1.5 billion goes into the pockets of the lazy Lefties that run a public broadcaster that no-one watches, despite the fact it’s the public that is paying these obscene wages to a private phalanx of Left loonies who believe passionately in their own infallibility and the public’s stupidity.
No wonder the sacked journos from Fairfax have rushed to the ABC for their slice of the gigantic cake, while impartial journos are driving cabs and flipping hamburgers.
Samantha Maiden who scored a Fox News gig has valiantly battled to secrete her hard Left opinions, but every now and again her pink (it’s almost red) slip shows.
Xenophon explains to One Nation why their ABC reform package is full of shit
There she was this morning exhorting the way the ABC is already legally obliged, via its charter, to give both sides of an issue, “except of course" she said, "when one side is clearly wrong”. Hmmm, I thought WTF could that be? “Well”, she said, “take vaccinations… those opposing that should not be heard because they are wrong."
I guess that also applies to those who think global warming is bullshit. And those who think the plebiscite is a gay fraud. And of course we need to reopen our borders on humanitarian grounds. So the ABC will have no problem agreeing with that and will be fully justified in refusing any alternative view.
Samantha... nice misguided sheila but perennial pisspot
So clearly Samantha and Nick agree with a balanced ABC only if it refuses to give air time to what they both disagree with and you can throw in that Green fool Di Natale who also believes the ABC is fair and balanced. Hmmm.
Well, I for one would like to hear the argument against vaccinations, if only Samantha would agree. I told my wife not to get my little boy jabbed because I am not convinced of anything that is driven by chemical companies. My wife presented me with a letter from the Government threatening to withhold all child payments from Centrelink if my boy was not vaccinated.
I nearly fell off my chair! A Government blackmailing me into vaccinating my kid under the threat of cancelling payments afforded all those who obey the government. Both the Government and Samantha Maiden know all there is to know about vaccinations? I doubt that. Well, I sure don’t know, but I would like to hear from those who are better informed than the Government, Nick, Samantha, Di Natale and me. But I’m not allowed to apparently.
There are an array of views we aren't allowed to know about
The reason I would like to know more is that my boy was vaccinated against my will and immediately after that, he showed signs of autism. That was four years ago and he is gradually improving, but we needed to employ a behaviourist and a speech therapist to accompany him at school at $40 an hour each, and spend time and money taking him to anyone claiming they could help.
His older sister was disadvantaged because every available minute we had was spent with him.
There are clowns who won't allow a thirst for vital information
Now, I don’t know enough to form an opinion on this, and I’m damned sure Nick, Samantha, that idiot Di Natale, and the Government don’t know either, yet somehow they have already formed an immovable opinion and remarkably don’t want an alternative opinion aired. Neither to them nor us.
Is it any wonder the ABC and this Government cannot be trusted?
